The Devil's in the Details

A six-ton granite monument to the 10 Commandments appeared mysteriously at the courthouse in Dixie County, Florida, as if deposited there by a divine being who thinks nothing of carving and lifting such massive pieces of stone.

Unfortunately, the creator misspelled "adultery" and totally botched the syntax of No. 4 -- unless he's fresh off a writing workshop with James "A Million Little Pieces (of Fiction)" Frey and decided to take a little liberty with normal sentence structure.

But we'll cut God some slack. He's obviously really good at biology and geography. Maybe the spelling and grammar is all Satan's territory. Knowing us, we wouldn't be at all surprised.
